The Knicks didn't really give up anything to get him(assuming they're going to be good enough to where the 1st rounder would be low), but I just don't see how it will work out.

 

I think A'mare will be the most affected by this. He's not a great fit with either Chandler or Bargnani.


I think Stoudamire is gonna be amnestied eventually.  But we'll see.   they could still bring him off the bench I guess but my feeling is he's done

They already used their amnesty on Chauncey Billups.

Then he'll be traded, probably to the Clippers.

If the Knicks trade Chandler to GS, then their line up is: Felton, Shumpert, Carmelo, Bargnani, Stoudemire. Good old Knicks. Besides Shumpert, that lineup is all offense first, defense second. If/when Carmelo leaves, I'd take him for 10-12 million as a secondary option. He's really good playing off of other talent, as seen in the Olympics. Dwight, Carmelo, and a third star guard could be great.

Last season, Andrea Bargnani became the first 7-footer in NBA history to average more than 28 minutes yet fewer than 4 rebounds per game

 

 

 

oh how lovely :laughing:

He can't stay healthy, will make about $45 mil the next 2 seasons, and his contract in uninsured. I doubt they'll be able to move him.

Kobe

Yes, for the years of 2014-2016 ish, depending on how long Kobe will play. I love Kobe, but we need someone to carry on after he is gone. I would love to have Irving here in 2015.

@HowardBeckNYT: UPDATE: Knicks trade for Bargnani will NOT be approved by NBA tonight. Teams have to restructure with 2013-14 cap figures

 

@HowardBeckNYT: Knicks and Raptors both still motivated to do the deal but have to tweak once the 2013-14 salaries kick in on July 1

 

@HowardBeckNYT: Knicks and Raps can revive Bargnani deal with NY including minimum-salary player. Deal will still get done

 

@HowardBeckNYT: But Knicks might need to get one of their FAs to agree to sign-and-trade deal. Looks like they shoulda kept James White

Damn Toronto new owner doing a hell of a job, got rid of Bargs who they couldn't get rid of in the past and got 2 picks off him, and did NOT take money back.

Well he was the GM of the Nuggets..

I actually think the Chandler/Bargnani combo can work though. Chandler should do as well of a job as anybody can of hiding Bargnani's lack of defense and rebounding. And, they don't occupy the same space on offense.

When I seen what they were giving up, Novak and nothing else, I can say this is a Win-win for the Knicks.

 

 

I know Bargnani had a bad season, and is not a great player, but with Chandler, he can be a very effective scorer and they can hide him in th edefense like RC did with Dirk, just zome up.

 

 

meanwhile, Amare and Ab can be a decent  match, with no melo on the floor, maybe Copeland, and a couple of guards

Masai Uriji deserves to win GM of the Year again just for getting rid of that useless piece of Primo pasta.

Also they just basically said they are choosing Bargnani as their stretch 4 over Melo thus moving him back to the 3 position...



There are many reasons why this move screws the Knicks.

Incarcerated Bob is not worth anyone's time.  Beck reported that well before him, and he jumps on it and will either let others assume he's the guy to break the news by not answering when asked, or he'll simply take credit for it.  He has also made up plenty of rumors, over time, that held absolutely no weight whatsoever...just to get a few extra followers.
